Where do I enter Work expense receipts

Here's how to get to the employee job expense interview.   You must be able to itemize deductions on Schedule A.   Employee job expenses are further limited.  They are subject to the 2% rule for miscellaneous expenses, which means they only start to count when the total of your miscellaneous expenses (which includes job expenses) exceeds 2% of AGI.

Try this navigation:

  • Open the return ("Take me to my return.")
  • When the return is open, click in the left menu column on TAX TOOLS, then TOOLS.

  • Enter the phrase job expenses without quotes.
  • Select job expenses, employee and click GO.
